诗人传记

1850年11月5日出生于威斯康星州洛克县的约翰斯敦中心,艾拉·惠勒(Ella Wheeler)从小是流行文学的狂热读者,尤其是E.D.E.N.的小说。Southworth,Mary Jane Holmes和Ouida。她的第一批出版作品,一些素描提交给纽约水星,在她14岁时出现。不久,她的诗出现在《韦弗利杂志》和《莱斯利的周刊》上。除了在威斯康星大学(1867  -  68年)任职一年,此后她还致力于写作。惠勒的第一本书《节制经文》集合出现在1872年,当时是水滴。贝壳是一本宗教和道德诗集的集合,随后是1873年,以及1876年的一部情感诗句的毛琳(Maurine)。它的成功是由另一位出版商在1883年作为激情的诗歌发行时的成功,这是一个令人难以置信的标题,与任何内容一样重视。两年内出售60,000份册,牢固确立了惠勒的声誉。1884年,她与商人罗伯特·M·威尔科克斯(Robert M. Wilcox)结婚。 While making herself the center of a literary coterie, Wilcox continued to pour out verses laced with platitudes and easy profundities. They were collected in such volumes as Men, Women, and Emotions (1893), Poems of Pleasure (1888), Poems of Sentiment (1906), Gems (1912), and World Voices (1918). Wilcox also wrote much fiction, including Mal Moulée (1885), A Double Life (1890), Sweet Danger (1892), and A Woman of the World (1904); two autobiographies, The Story of a Literary Career (1905) and The Worlds and I (1918); and columns of prose and poetry for various newspapers and articles and essays for Cosmopolitan and other magazines. After her husband's death in 1916 Wilcox made her long-standing interest in spiritualism the subject of a series of columns as she sought--successfully, she claimed--to contact his spirit. At her husband's direction (she said), Wilcox undertook a lecture and poetry-reading tour of Allied army camps in France in 1918. She fell ill early in 1919 and died at her home in Short Beach, Connecticut, on October 30, 1919.
